characterized their foreign policy as leading from behind. i call that following. >> these days, his critics have more ammunition with the deaths of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans in libya. it happened on 9/11, raising questions, why wasn't security ramped up? and why were protests initially blamed for the attack? a month later, the president addressed these questions on abc news. >> as information came in, information was put out. the information may not have always been right the first time. >> the president says the fog of war created confusion. what is clear, as commander in chief, the president can fly solo. to solve the country's domestic problems, he needs a partner. >> the president was going to have to deliver half the democrats. i was going to have to deliver half the republicans. i was confident i could do that. . >>> a gorgeous june day. the nation's capital. but this is no ordinary golf game. for president barack obama and house speaker john boehner, this is a chance to be partners rather than political foes. by june 2011, it had been eight months since the r

senator from indiana, richard luger, their most important foreign policy spokesperson because he was attacked by his opponent for cooperating with president obama on national security. they're nominee actually said, i couldn't make this up, that his happiest day was when he was imposing his opinion on someone else and he wanted the people to send him to washington, so that he could have more partisanship in washington, d.c. now if you want it, you can have it. the people of indiana don't want it, congressman joe donnelly his opponent was ahead by 11 points in the most recent polls, you're going to change that. but it will all be for naught if you reward him by not electing president obama. if you want cooperation over conflict, if you want people to walk through the same door and sit down at the same table and behave like grown-ups, you have to re-elect president obama. [ cheers and applause ] >> former president bill clinton stumping for president barack obama. election day just two days away and so could former president clinton make a real difference in the outcome of the elec

experience with foreign policy. in helping to connect the dots between an inexperienced person with foreign policy and the domestic economy. he could have connected the dots better between george bush rush sbug w rushing into war and he didn't do that. this is a man who had to flee, basically, the states. he characterized as he decided to go to the olympics. but the truth of the matter is he had a sub-40% approval rating when he was leaving office. it wasn't as if he opted to leave, voters were kicking him out. he did not do a good job. president obama pointed that ouou out. he spent too much time on taxes and bain capital. the other thing i think they did not do well was connect the dots with women's rights. they spent too much time on abortion and contraceptives and not enough time pointing out the democrats putting forth with women. he didn't do a good job pointing that out. >> okay. lz and anna, don't go anywhere. we're going to ask each of you what the mitt romney campaign did right and what they did wrong. think about your answers because we'll see you in about four minutes he

searching for some entry point to criticize obama on foreign policy. obama had what the public regards as generally a pretty successful foreign policy. libya proved to be one place they could go in, because there was a -- there was a mishandling of the events right after the assassination, the murder of the ambassador. they didn't know what was happening. they got out some wrong information. but the idea that there was some kind of purposeful, you know, cover-up, that there was deception or that there was some kind of treasonous behavior, many of these implications go beyond clumsiness and incompeten incompetence. it is fair to say there was a fair amount of clumsiness and incompetence. to go to deceit and deception and treason, it seems to me there is absolutely no evidence for this. we don't know whether there was -- whether it was fair to say they were prepared for this. remember, we have 265 consulates and diplomatic postings around the world. on any given week, 25 of them asked for more security and, you know, you got limited resources, you make decisions you can in retros

foreign policy that reckless and wrong or you can choose the kind of leadership that i provided, that's steady and strong. you can choose to turn back the clock 50 years for women and immigrants or in this election, you can stand up for that basic principle enshrined in our founding documents that all of us are created equal. black, white, hispanic, asian, native american, young, old, rich, poor, gay, straight, able, disabled, no matter who you are, no matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, you've got a place in america. you can make it here if you try. that's what we believe. new hampshire, we've been through tough times. but we've been through tough times before and we're tougher. we always come out on top. we always bounce back. because we pull together, because we look after one another. because we don't leave anybody behind. because when we succeed, we prop that door open and bring those who are following behind us. we pull them through. that's who we are. our destiny is not written for us. it's written by us. we don't go backward. we look forward. to tha

brink of disaster and has made a decent fist of foreign policy. this newspaper would stick with the devil it knows and re-elect him. "time magazine" chose not to go the traditional route. instead the weekly published two opinion pieces. each making the case for one of the candidates. also, printed three front covers this week. yes. you can pick up three. one focuses on the superstorm. the other illustrates the presidential race. you can see it here. michael crowley is time's deputy chief -- washington bureau chief and, michael, first of all, it's really interesting. it's very unique. we've seen a lot of mups and magazines go one way or the other. why did "time" decide to go this route with basically two endorsements? >> well, look, you know, voters have been bombarded in the closing weeks of this campaign with negative ads, you know, big bird, benghazi, issues that may be important but are narrow, so here's an opportunity to zoom back, go back to first principles, what are the cases for the two candidates fundamentally, and i think it's really useful to zoom out and get the big pict

pretty well in this last presidential debate, which was about foreign policy, but in many ways that debate was about being the commander in chief and being able to lead, and i think that's what we'll see president obama try to portrait over the next 48 hours, and i think governor romney is going to try to do that as well. >> all right. we'll be watching closely. thank you, mark. good to see you. >>> live pictures from atlantic city, new jersey, where hurricane sandy is pounding the coast. the eye of the storm expected to make landfall there between 8:00 and midnight eastern tonight. as we mentioned, president obama, he is cancelling campaign events to stand by those being hit by this beast of a storm. >> my message to the governors as well as to the mayors is anything they need, we will be there. >> we'll hear the president live later in the hour about 20 minutes or so is when he is scheduled to speak from the white house. and some difficult ones. but, through it all, we've persevered, supporting some of the biggest ideas in modern history. so why should our anniversary matter to yo
